One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Seize the Birthday #10 {Masculine Birthday}

This week on Seize the Birthday # 10 Masculine card... it is all about the males in our life!  My SIL is an avid golfer, so I knew exactly what stamp set I wanted to use for his birthday card...which is this month!  I heat embossed the white balls and tees for the side strip and then stamped the clubs and the "green" with the flag still in the hole!  I selectively stamped the clubs with Hero Arts "charcoal" ink (which BTW, dries a lot lighter and is a very fine gray!) and then the blueberry sky for the bag.  That might actually be what color his bag is in real life!
Here is the sketch for this weeks card!  Go have some fun and make another birthday card!
